The newest round of PLTW/Verizon grants for middle schools to implement Computer Science courses' application and more information is available at www2.pltw.org/e/82012/unding-and-grant-opportunities/47kdr8/330067737
One of the requirements of the grant is for eligible schools to serve populations with at least 70% students eligible for FRL. This includes many students in our urban areas as well as some rural communities. I would appreciate your help in getting the word out to schools to apply for the grant. The application is a “common app”, which means that it not only serves to apply for the Verizon grant but also future grant opportunities that PLTW receives. PLTW uses the application pool to reach out to potential donors to demonstrate that schools across the nation have financial need to implement rigorous and engaging curriculum in CS as well as other STEM fields.
